Mac Tip of the Week # 10: The Untold Secrets of the PowerPoint Presenter Tools!

When playing your PowerPoint presentations, do you use the Presenter Tools? If not, you might want to try it next time.

The Presenter Tools  allow you to see the time (current or elapsed), view your slide notes, and preview the next slide. It also allows you to open links from your presentations (something you can’t do if you show the presentation without the Presenter Tools).

This tip will show you how to take advantage of these helpful tools!

Special Projects Last Week

At the Graduate Hooding on Friday May 14, Thea Maestre gave a wonderful speech that reflects our diversity at HNU. Part of her speech included reading a children’s literature book while  extraordinary multicultural illustrations projected on both walls of the VCPA.

Two projectors (mounted on the CatWalk railings) and a MacBook were used to project the images, which were scanned with the Library’s new scanner. As Thea read from the book, she used a clicker that commanded the MacBook (located way up on the CatWalk!) to advance to the next slide. Great job Thea!
